My gal and I started the same way but a year earlier. Funny, we came from Florida...the place where the guy who started this thread moved to! Florida was good for us...but we have always loved the west.

We bought property in Cloudcroft at the Woodlands and plan to build someday when we retire. Right now we are living in Tularosa. It's a charming little oasis...plenty of history and lots of characters, maybe even some potential for the spectacular. But it's lot warmer than any of the nearby mountains.

Good luck with your plans. You'll certainly enjoy it up at 9000 feet!
If you don't mind - what do you do for a living to be able to survive in Tularosa. I am (perhaps incorrectly) deducing that you are not of retirement age.

Thanks!

We are artists and operate a studio/gallery on Hwy 54/70 in Tularosa. It's called Studio 54@70. You can see pictures of it if you search 'Tularosa' on this website. We also do outdoor shows from time to time, hold workshops, offer lessons and provide services to artists, e.g. matting, restoration, etc.
Come by and see us, we're here everyday except Mondays. 575-585-5470

I've been driving through Tulie all of my long life as I tripped to the family cabin in Ruidoso in both summer and winter months. Until they began development on the rich farmland on the south side of Tulie (US 54), it was always such a treat to reach there after the long ride across the sand dunes of the desert. Such wonderful mature cottonwoods and lombardy poplars and those irrigated fields of crops.

I've long pondered why Tulie hasn't taken off as a retirement haven. And I've come to understand that it's because the family-owned lands there have been "in the family" for generations. One of the most knowledgeable people on area history lives in Tulie and anyone who has the chance should take one of the tours that she leads - Cynthia Prelo-Reidinger. She is associated with ENMU in Ruidoso and does several tours a year as part of their "Continuing Education" program. Very reasonably priced and so interesting. Especially the one that visits the old mission churches in the area surrounding Tulie.
